Through Wolf's Eyes
by: Jane Lindskold
review by: Tina Morgan


When I first opened Through Wolf's Eyes by Jane Lindskold, I was a bit skeptical. I've read too many stories about children being raised by wolves or other animals that didn't work for me but the character, Firekeeper, came alive in ways I didn't expect.

Her memories of life before she came to be with the "royal wolves" are vague and shadowed. She knows only her life as a wolf but when Earl Kestrel ventures into her forest in search of King Tedric's banished son, she must decide whether to stay with the wolves or return to the world of men.

Encouraged by her pack leaders, Firekeeper returns with the Earl and finds herself in the middle of a fight for dominance that she does not understand. King Tedric's children have all met with an early death his health is failing. With his time growing ever shorter, he must name an heir to the throne. Firekeeper is the right age to be his missing granddaughter, Blysse but even if she is the princess, can she learn to live amongst humans again? If she becomes queen she'll never be able to return to her forest again.

Through Wolf's Eyes is an enchanting tale with intriguing subplots and realistic characters. Perhaps my biggest complaint with the story would be that the subplots were so interesting that I would have preferred to have spent more time on those. The world she creates is rich in its complexity. My own personal reading preference is for stories that are more straightforward and feature fewer characters but that should not take away from Ms. Lindskold's writing ability.

Through Wolf's Eyes is a  * * * *  read. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel, Wolf's Head, Wolf's Heart and continuing Firekeeper's journey into realizing her true heritage.

Through Wolf's Eyes is available through Amazon.com
